This concert will benefit United Ways in Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and Lancaster County, PA. A primary goal of this music festival is to have a positive impact on the communities involved. As a result of this concert, the money invested into these communities will positively impact the education, income and health of the most vulnerable and most needy citizens in these regions. As a result of last year’s Budweiser Made in America festival, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey is investing more than $300,000 into education and talent development initiatives to enhance cradle-to-career education that ensures all students graduate high school college- or career-ready and equips individuals with the job skills and training they need to secure work that provides a family-sustaining income. The festival also enabled United Way of Lancaster County to invest an additional $100,000 in programs and services in Education, Financial Stability and Health.
As always, this should be an epic event.
